Around the Nets: Tuesday’s Gone

  • It’s safe to say, one of the major deciding factors in Deron Williams’ decision will be what abnormally tall man he gets to play beside.’s Tim McMahon breaks down who that man could be for the Mavericks.
  • These Dwight Howard shirts will either become a sense of pride or completely ironic. My gut is with the latter.
  • One person that would like to see European big man Mirza Teletovic take his talents to Brooklyn is Aleksandar Petrovic, head coach of the Bosnian National team and brother of this guy.
